If you have bacon in the fridge and pasta in the cupboard, chances are you have a cheap and tasty meal in store. Find recipes for classic carbonara, penne with broccoli and bacon, bacon pasta salads and many, many more.
A quick and easy pasta dish for the bacon lovers. Penne is tossed with sauteed onion, crisp bacon and Parmesan cheese. Serve with a side salad and/or garlic bread, if desired.
A family favourite! Great served with a crisp green salad and garlic bread.
This is the comforting version of carbonara I grew up eating. Serve it piping hot tossed with extra Parmesan cheese and chopped fresh parsley.
I came up with this when I had very little in and it turned out to be a substantial, tasty meal.
I am not suggesting for a minute that spaghetti carbonara can be a diet food. However, if you are a fan of this creamy, comforting pasta dish and balk at the calories, here's a method that shaves a few off by omitting butter and cream. It's still yummy though!
